This will be the 27th CleanSweepNY collection event and over 1.93 million pounds of various chemical wastes have been collected for proper disposal across the state of New York.

Participants must register to participate in this waste collection program and registration forms can be requested at the following phone number or e-mail address (the phone is voice only and does not accept text messages):

The deadline for registration is Friday, October 4th so please request and send in the completed registration form quickly.

CleanSweepNY staff look forward to providing this valuable service to those eligible entities that have waste chemicals for disposal which can potentially contaminate New York State’s environment and beautiful outdoor areas.

The collection dates and locations are as follows:

Wednesday October 23rd Melville, NY

CleanSweepNY Services are Not Available to Homeowners.

More specific information will be provided to those entities that register, and appointment times and locations will be scheduled and mailed out to everyone during the week of October 7th.

CleanSweepNY services are provided to farmers and owners of former farms, all categories of NYS certified pesticide applicators, cemeteries, golf courses, marinas, schools, landscapers and lawncare providers, nurseries, greenhouses, and other entities possessing unwanted or unusable pesticides and other waste chemicals. Each participant is responsible for transporting their materials to the collection site. CleanSweepNY results in enhanced stewardship of the environment through the improved management and proper disposal of unusable pesticides and other chemical wastes. These materials may pose human health risks upon exposure and represent a potential hazard to New York State’s groundwater and surface water resources.

The collections are scheduled and organized by NYSDEC with the collaboration of NYSDOT who generously provides sites for the collection of these unwanted chemical materials. CleanSweepNY is supported by Cornell Cooperative Extension, the Agricultural Container Recycling Council, Soil and Water Conservation Districts, New York Farm Bureau, and other related grower associations.
